The town of Pilot Butte will be receiving a significant upgrade to some of it’s infrastructure.
The community will see a significant upgrade to its wastewater and storm water management thanks in part to the federal and provincial governments.
Both the country and province will invest over 2-million-dollars into the project that will continue to help Pilot Butte grow.
The upgrades include new pumping and pipeline infrastructure, an expansion and upgrade of the existing lagoon and the addition of effluent disinfection equipment.
Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness says Pilot Butte is also using a portion of its regular allocation from the federal gas tax transfer for work already underway.
“It’s being used to control the drainage system and the storm water upgrades,” Goodale said at a news conference Monday in Pilot Butte, Sask. “This will relive pressure on the sanitary sewer system,control erosion and help prevent flooding.”
MLA for Indian Head Milestone Don McMorris and Pilot Butte Mayor, Peggy Chorney were also on hand for the announcement.
